The neighborhood boasts an impressive range of world restaurants- Spanish, Cuban, Vietnamese, Mexican, Asian, Middle Eastern and Malaysian cuisines.

KingField borders fabulous Linden Hills, a charming small shops 'village' on the other side of Lake Harriet, Lyn/Lake, another great urban gem full of dozens of innovative restaurants, comedy/improv club and movie theaters; Eat Street, the name speaks for itself, is a handful of blocks north from your apartment. Uptown, offers all of the above.

Great Living Space, Great hosts and close to many things.

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by the host upon arrival and shown around. The space was perfect and within walking distance to lakes and bike rentals. As a surprise it was also in walking distance to many great restaurants and cafes. We highly recommend staying here and also highly recommend the restaurants Revival, Hola Arepa (both walking distance) and The Red Cow.

Very comfortable and just as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at Jeanine and John's upstairs apartment. Comfortable for the 5 of us, several fun areas to sit and talk. It was quiet, beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we wanted including coffee and a welcome chocolate bar, several quality furnishings in this older home which is obviously well maintained and cared for. John even delivered some delicious pastries for my 60th birthday-much appreciated! The neighborhood has a lot of charm, we enjoyed walking around the nearby lakes and just relaxing. They obviously put a lot of work into making the apartment a fun place. We only wished we could have stayed longer!

Beautiful space, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

I reserved John and Jeanine's VRBO apartment for my brother and sister-in-law, visiting me in Minneapolis. I knew they would love it, and they did. The space itself is just lovely and kept beautifully. The neighborhood is near Minneapolis' most beautiful city lake (a short walk, although this was in January) and several interesting restaurants. But John and Jeanine may be the best part of the place. They are warm and welcoming and, if you're lucky enough to spend some time with them, both interesting and interested.
